. it was painful. i appreciate people showing up and telling us their personal stories. it affected how we did things. we now have a pretty robust a transition system that will get us 300 people down the list. there are people bitter about the transition. there are people in the room that i respect very much that thinkg that prop k is a better way to go. the next challenge is how to address commissioner maguires points? how do we regulate the service? it will benefit the customers and drivers by revitalizing the industry getting a lot of money back into it. there are lots of things that we can do. i will take this time to say, at our next board retreat i would like to dedicate time to taxis. it has taken us a long time to make the regulatory changes that we make today in a few meetings and now we are poised to make service changes. i councilman director reiskin to conclude this early in his term; there are a lot of things that can be done ranging from the proposal to close market street so the cabs can have a corridor that can use to a -- ranging to stealing from some of the best ideas

supportive and helpful in helping all of us move to this process. i just had a couple final points. first of all, you know, i think we all -- a lot of people have it in our heads we would love for everyone to live in a single-family home or some really big spacious flat. and unfortunately that's not the reality of 2012 san francisco. very few people who are not fortunate enough to have bought or rented a large place a long time ago can afford to do that. it's just not an economic reality in san francisco and we need to be housing everyone, not just the people who are lucky enough to be able to afford or to have spent a long time living in a reasonably priced large unit. we also, as much as we all support public investment in affordable housing -- and i was a big proponent of proposition c, we're never going to have enough public affordable housing money to solve our housing affordability problem just through public investment. part of the solution, it will never be the entire solution, we have to be flexible and creative. and i also want to address i think a fallacy that's out there that

, streets and the neighbors. tell us about that. >> well, you know, we were in baker county, you hear about, you read about some of the sheriffs of earlier years, but the gator and the sheriff in our county wanted to be known as the gator. the gator actually ruled everything, everyone in the county. you can imagine looking at the westerns from earlier days, anyone like him, but he was worse than what you see in your worst western. but growing up in that, my family lived, my great, great grandparents had come to baker county, i don't know whether they came as slaves or not, but i know they ended up there as sharecroppers, and with the intent on buying land. and that they did. they bought enough land that the area where i grew up is still today called hopkins down. and lots of families, but it was that way commute, the hawkins lived in one area. the williams and another, but we were all one big family, and felt we had to help each other. and so i was raised up on a farm, and my father, there were five girls, you know, any farmer wants a son. i guess any man wants a son, but my mother and fath

any sort of metal or did they use hardened rocks of some sort to shape their stones? . >> most of what they did was stone. metallurgy was just starting to move up into northern chijuajua at that time and they were working with copper. that was just ornamental, so there was no metal going on at all other than imported bells. >> and the shells, they went down to cortez -- not lake -- the cortez sea to get, was that mostly hard or brittle? . >> it was hard but not tool hard. the colorado plateau is covered with chert, a glassy rock that is really really good for making tools, making very sharp edges. you find there are pieces of chert all over the place and you can still cut your skin open very quickly with it and it's been sitting out in the open. >> where does chert come from? . >> it's a marine rock that's mostly silica. you find it in these layers, sandstone layers. if you are especially in a marine or water environment, you will find this layer of chert. it's in all colors, purple, green, red, blue. it's a beautiful rock. . >> one thing i wanted to ask you, the review in the paper re
around the country. that settled into 25% mode split. it puts us in the top 3. chicago has 23-1/2. so, those benchmarks are far and above the transit mode system we've seen are around the country. i'm a little worried why we at mta contributed from the 40 to 20 and i can tell you one of the challenges we have to do is to sustain the great word of mouth. the transit is a way to get there. the list for me is the america's cup experience. you remember the weekend supposed to end by weekend. october 6 or october 7 where we had america's cup fleet week, giants, 49ers, everything happening. we had extraordinary transit modes. we had record rider ship on every single conveyor of people moving out of the area. the lesson is don't scare people away. invite them to take transit. make the options real. do fantastic marketing. i have a feeling our transit was some of the highest we ever saw. it is much more malleable formula. i would say the assumptions back in '99 weren't that far off from where we were, but the trends we're seeing now are positive in getting more people walking and bicycle and

. it is the tax revenue that comes to the city's general fund that's been used to pay for supplemental services for mta, police, outside of their premises on game days. is that the model we were expecting for this development? >> i don't think so. we will endeavor to create a separate funding stream that has neighborhood oversight and input. maybe neighborhood control. this is something we need to -- in a cbd model you wind up having neighborhood or stakeholder control of pot of money that can be used to deploy to address issues that are often neighborhood issues. not sure we will have a cbd but what we are committed is creating a dedicated funding stream that is visible and discreet from the city's commitment to ongoing maintenance and security. that the neighbors have said one of the things necessary is an ability to dial a response to impacts from having large numbers of people come in and out of the neighborhood. >> we don't have a real concept of what the funding mechanism would look like. >> we don't have a concept of the mechanism or what the funding stream is but that is something that,

beating the dough too much and smiled when we had an almost round 40 a. for us, it is a the best way to connect because they live very far away and we do not get to see the mother rise. it is an important way for all of us to be able to connect with our families and with our communities. for americans living with disabilities, many of whom are also aging americans, broadband and commuters -- computers can provide even more critical tools for health and wellness. they allow someone with a speech impairment to e-mail her doctor, a person who is mobility limited to its in glasses -- classes online, and for someone else to work at home. 29% of people with disabilities would join the work force if telecommuting were actually a viable option for them. before working at home, however, broadband is now a necessity for anyone searching for a job. many job openings are only posted online. about 80% of fortune 500 companies only accept job applications online. and about 60% of working americans use the internet as an integral part of their jobs every single day. if you do not have broadband, yo
that is very important to us. and with the budget cuts for the past years it's very difficult for students, including myself, to get back on track and to take the courses needed. and personally the budget cut has affected my also. so i have been staying extra long at school taking extra courses. because there is no after school or summer school. and to get back to track the students need the resources along with me. and every student deserves to graduate. and they should not be held back because of the lack of resources. and it's important to fund the san francisco credit recovery options because we want the youth to be successful and to be productive in school and the communities and san francisco. and like paul said, we are in support of this proposal. thank you. >> thank you for being here. >> good afternoon, i am della walker, i was not planning to speaking this afternoon. i was in a meeting with the mayor. and heard about the concerns about the school district and their not using the reserve funding. as a former policy maker we know it's not wise to go to the bottom and utilize our re

parties in addition to the high speed rail authority and cal train is the task ahead for us. the, i believe, i have a great concern about opening a supplemental and then locking ourselves in and then telling ourselves that we can't reopen it. i know that we have to do a supplemental eir but i don't think that we yet know what should be in it. >> i just add on that that question. because i had a related question. and so i was actually curious because i know that we are also in discussion and this is largely around how we fund, high speed rail and dtfs in the long term and that there has been conversations about kind of a much, much ambitious project that involves development and undergrounding and lots of lots of other things and i was curious as to whether that might be part of a different phase and that is why the scope of this face two was so limited? >> if i could respond to that. we were asked by the federal rail administration as a continue of the 400 million that they allocated to us that they extend the platforms and the radii. we applied to the federal transit administration
. and even though money is not everything, the ability for us to commit resources as a city is really important. and what i understand of this item is that there is a discussion about whether or not to tie the funding that's underlying this item to the rainy day fund. and to the extent that happens, to the extent that there is a connection between this appropriation and the rainy day fund, i will not support it. the rainy day fund was created for the very purpose of this city making public education a priority. the rainy day fund, as was enacted by the board of supervisors, as was crafted by then supervisor ammiano has to stand on its own terms, it has its own triggers, its own mechanisms for deciding what exactly the school district gets. and to the extent that we are trying to use this supplemental appropriation as a09( #ta way of minimizing the amount given to the school district through the rainy day fund i have a problem with that. so to the extent that this item comes back to us in the form where it is tied to the rainy day fund, i will not be supporting it, and i would encourag

for helping us to put up the lighting. many folks in the room may know we did have an electrical fire yesterday. that resulted in a fire. which is why we have the lighting that is up. i want to ask all the members of the public here with us say thank you for your patience. just a few things. i know there is a glare or light directly in your face. unfortunately we are not able to move that. we need to light the podium so sfgtv will be able to pick up the image on television and show or broadcast that. in addition to that the air conditioning is not on. so please do have patience with us today. we are going to try to get through this meeting as quickly as we can but also make sure we have full public process while we are doing that. we have also set up another room. room 263 as the overflow room. if you are not able to find a seat in this room, we do have another. room 263 across the hall for overflow capacity. so that concludes my announcements. >> mr. young, item one. >> item one, resolution authorizing san francisco department of public health to retroactively accept and expend grant
it is an item that needs to come before us. whether we can do something with it or not, i think we still need to have some transparency about that. >> yeah. i agree, commissioner, that i think it is a discussion we should have. i personally would like to get a tour of the facilities that are out there and any other commissioner that wants to familiarize himself with it. because it seems that we have a permanent place on this agenda that it's talked about. whether we like it or not. so maybe we can like it a little more. >> i actually don't know where they are. i would like to -- >> yeah, we -- >> okay. >> and in fact, we did -- when i first came on as commissioner we did do a tour of the facilities. it was laid out what was going to go where, what was going to be done, some resources. possible resources there were. then it just -- then it was just dropped. this was some time ago. i think it would be good to have other commissioners go on the tour and, you know, kind of get brought up to date on what's happened with that project. >> okay. >> is there any public comment on this? being none, pub

, sal, tell us about the book and the journey you went that led you to writing the book? >> guest: the book is about the journey, but how that informed what khan became and how that could inform what learning could become, and not just in a pies in the sky way, but this is really happening and feels like we're in this inflection point in what's going on in classrooms. you know, the whole adventure for me started somewhat inadvertently. it was 2004. i was working as an analyst at a hedge fund at the time. just got married. family from new orleans visiting me in boston after my wedding, and one cousin, nadia, was having trouble. 12 years old, a bright girl, share some of the beauty, and when i asked her, her mom told me, and nadia said she was having trouble with units. i said, let me tutor you. she thought i was bluffing. she went back to new orleans, got on the phone, we used some tools on the internet to see each other and pen tablet things, and long story short, you know, she went from being a struggling student to catching up with the class and becoming somewhat advanced studen

it is to help us address in the immediate our class of 2014 for this spring semester. i think you heard deputy superintendent lee describe our fiscal situation. and our task is how to deal in infrastructure and make up for the additional monies we have lost. like the 21st century monies and to be sure that there are opportunities for the students. and that's part of our task. and appealing for the funds and identifying others. >> the way that i look at it from my perspective of working intimately with our high schools. we passed a new graduation requirement that we believe in and want to be sure that our students have the opportunities. they make a choice whether they go to a uc system or different. we are not making that for them by limiting their course options. at the same time after we did that, there was this giant deficit we felt through the city -- through the state. then it was how we implement these new requirements while we experience these cuts. so school sites experienced it because they got less money than they had before. and why you heard some going from a seven to
us that advantage. we are getting half million square feet. we are building a park for 54,000 feet at cost of 32 million, very similar to what is at piers 3032. this would allow us to get half million square feet of landscaped parkland plus additional open space, plus all the economic benefits in form of fiscal feasibility report. we don't have that balance sheet in our wildest dreams to invest 120 million to accomplish those goals. it will take a big idea. that was my exact testimony. it will take a big idea with lots of benefits. as i was listening to ms. mathis's presentation, i was thinking this will hurt partners in oakland. it is challenging for all of us, but one i'm hoping we can take advantage of of the waterfront and keep this as economically viable as possible. those are the thoughts. i'm happy to take questions if you have them. >> thank you. supervisor kim, did you have a question? thank you. why don't we go to the budget analyst report. mr. rose. if i can ask you to go to the poem. >> madam chair, members of the committee, we have a conclusion and report on page 18 wh
. as a result -- i will use the overhead here. alamo square will be the fourth park we have been able to implement this in. previous projects include alta plaza, a 900,000 reward, replacing the irrigation controller and install drought tolerant no-month grass and improve drainage. balboa park, 120,000 grant reward. we replaced the booster pump and raised the sunken boxes and improved the irrigation line. lastly, those in jefferson square in the western addition, with over a million in a grant reward replaced the entire system, installed a state-of-the-art system, no-month grass and drought tolerant landscaping features throughout the perimeter of that large park. have not been through there recently and will take the consensus down the first week in december. it's been a transformative project for us. let's see. in february of this year the department submitted the required application documents for this project. it ranks as one of the highest water using parks of all of our parks in our entire system. the water use is over 7 million gallons, 23.7 acre feet for your water geeks. which
rosen has been in the thick of one of those protests, and he joins us now live from landover hills, maryland. james? >> reporter: heather and rick, good afternoon. from what walmart executives are telling us, the protest staged here at this particular walmart store affectionately known as number 5129 in suburban maryland, may have been the largest mounted anywhere in the country. by our unofficial count, some 400 picketers arrived in five charter buses from the d.c. area around 8:30 a.m. today. they chanted things like no justice, no peace, and they carried signs saying things like slave at wal-mart. local store managers told fox they, too, brought in reinforcements for security. how many, i asked? enough, they said. where are they, i asked? everywhere, they said. finally, the erstwhile leader of the protest, the reverend dr. edwin l. jones, a local pastor -- who, by the way, told us the united food and workers union helped organize the protest -- confronted the managers. at that moment bobby williams told us his store saw none of its 900 employees walk off the job -- 400 employees

more than a week of suffering, that's exactly how people here see it. imad told us this latest fight against israel has united palestinians. >> we have a great victory here in gaza okay. we imposed our conditions on them, okay, because we fight them. >> reporter: hamas' prime minister ismail haniyeh, put it this way: he said, "i want to say to the palestinian people in gaza that the option of invading gaza after this victory is gone and will never return." israel's leaders would dispute that, but today their soldiers were pulling back from the border with gaza. at the same time, the israeli army chief of staff benny gantzed a stark warning. >> if gaza will stay quiet, if nothing comes out of it, gaza will be a quiet place. if the terror organizations will reoperate from gaza, the future is worse than it was. >> reporter: if this was a victory for hamas, it came at a heavy cost. today, they held funerals for some of the 162 victims killed in the week-long bombardment. some services had been put off for days because mourners were afraid to go outside. it will take months to clean up th

the warriors on that. i see, you know, this resolution before us today on fiscal feasibility as a small step. certainly the amount of people in the room. it is a big step for the project moving forward but a small step in terms of all the questions and permitting processes we have to go through. so i actually felt very comfortable moving forward today. i also want to acknowledge the warriors and the work of the office of economic workforce development and community stake holders, labor organizations around getting aning a gaoument around local hiring, especially being a privately funded project it is a significant standard we are setting for future projects moving forward. clearly the city is embracing the need to look how we manage to bring local san franciscans into jobs we build in the city. i'm very excited this project is part of that principle and effort. i will be supporting this project moving forward or this resolution today. i is not a guarantee of approving future things but i think we have something worth moving forward and getting the full board support tuesday. >> thank you, su
